Little Sunflower: Arranged for horns and Picollo Bass.

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites YouTube Preview Image


My version of Little Sunflower played for the first time live. This incorporates chordal tapping, slapping, popping harmonics and just about all techniques on the bass guitar that don’t incorporate a plectrum or beer bottle……oh actually I did use a beer bottle for this…but only in preparation, and afterwards in celebration of my band making it through my scruffily written charts!
Originally arranged for Bass and Drums only, I had the chance to score out some horn parts the other day and tried it out at this gig so this is a live practice essentially. It went pretty well though I thought.


Yoshiaki Kayano: Trumpet
Yuma Hayasaka: Trombone soloist
Kayoko Yuasa: Trombone
Kohsuke Takahashi: Drms
